Cries and Whispers Reviews

August 1, 2007
The much-vaunted color symbolism is so obvious as to be almost charming in its simplicity, and the gothic ambience never really resonates.
August 1, 2007
Ingmar Bergman's dark vision of the human condition has focused on individuals incapable of real inter-personal communications except on the most primitive level.

Bergman's hour remains resolutely that of the wolf.

It stands alone and it reduces almost everything else you're likely to see this season to the size of a small cinder.

In order to understand why Cries and Whispers is a great film, it must be experienced, not merely watched.

Bergman never made another film this painful. To see it is to touch the extremes of human feeling. It is so personal, so penetrating of privacy, we almost want to look away.
